Found 28th Sep 2007
Cheapest place on the net, and got them in stock plus free delivery.

Everywhere else has them at £170 + P&P.

This is the Intel Quad Core Q6600 - four 2.4 GHz Cores, Socket 775 - this is the "G0" version which has a lower TDP (10w less - means it makes less heat), can withstand higher temps and overclocks better (ie 3.6 GHz on AIR!)

Let me guess, you were trying to work out how much one of the Commodore systems actually cost to build. Yes? ;-)

Very nice! Wish I could justify one of these, but I only upgraded 5 or 6 months ago as it is...

No. I just received one and fortunately it was.
I lowered the voltage to 1.05V in the BIOS and it radically reduces the power consumption. Here’s the wattage at idle and running 4 instances of Prime95:

Stock voltage – 66.5/141W
1.05V – 58.5/107W

That’s a saving of 34W when the CPU is under full load which will make cooling much easier.
